Rise I Will (The Sonnet) | Abhijit Naskar

Rise I Will Sonnet

Rise I Will (The Sonnet)

Every time there is darkness most foul,
I will burn to bring light, sight and might.
Every time there is misery unbound,
I will churn my soul to outpour delight.
Every time the horizon turns gloomy,
I will rush to the aid as a sentient soldier.
Every time the world is infected,
I will walk the alleys as a living sanitizer.
Every time there is savagery on the rise,
I will be the beacon of human alliance.
Every time bigotry overpowers the minds,
I’ll be the call to resuscitate fallen conscience.
I am not a person but a sentience beyond time.
Rise I will always in crisis to fortify my humankind.
― Abhijit Naskar, When Call The People: My World My Responsibility

Take My Life (The Sonnet) | Abhijit Naskar

Take My Life Sonnet

Take My Life (The Sonnet)

Take my life if you want,
But nothing can take my sight away.
Take my breath if you want,
But nothing can take my might away.
Take my feet if you want,
But nothing can take my journey away.
Take my arms if you want,
But nothing can take my touch away.
Take my tongue if you want,
But nothing can take my voice away.
Take my bones if you want,
But nothing can take my will away.
You can erase me from earth if you so desire,
But you can’t stop my ideas from spreading like wildfire.
― Abhijit Naskar, When Call The People: My World My Responsibility

Liberationville (The Sonnet) | Abhijit Naskar

Liberationville (2)

Liberationville (The Sonnet)

When the blood is boiling and conscience is screaming,
Stop not wishing for a messiah to appear.
When the heart is beating and the mind is restless,
Sit not praying for the miseries to disappear.
When the veins are burning and nerves are revolting,
Stay not cooped up in a cocoon of petty pleasures.
When the lungs are choking and cells are aching,
Stay not inanimate out of insecurities and fears.
When the spine is bending and the head is drooping,
Stay not silent submitting to tribal identity.
When the knees are trembling and the throat is thirsty,
Stand not frail as servant of conformity.
When the eyes are teary and lips are dreary, never consider sitting still.
Obliterate loyalty to atrocities of the norm waking up to liberationville.
― Abhijit Naskar, Mad About Humans: World Maker’s Almanac

COVID19 – Reality Check for Policymaking | Abhijit Naskar and Veronica Pana Igube #Pandemic

“Above the policies, above the law, above the government, above the constitution, there is a higher principle, that is the principle of individual integrity, without which no matter how much policies and laws we create, we cannot ensure health, safety and sanity in the society.”

It was an absolute blast to discuss with my friend and Lawyer Veronica Pana Igube the implications of the pandemic in policymaking and maintaining order.

Live Torch (The Sonnet) | Abhijit Naskar

Live Torch Sonnet

Live Torch (The Sonnet)

Be a live torch amidst the darkest night.
If not you, who else will light up the society!
Be a living weapon to defend the meek in fright.
If not you, who else will guard humanity!
Be a breathing sword to scare away inhumanities.
If not you, who else will draw the righteous line!
Be a valiant shield to stand against atrocities.
If not you, who else will call that duty mine!
Be a daring drum announcing the beats of acceptance.
If not you, who else will be the emblem of inclusion!
Be a fierce arrow to penetrate the clouds of conformity.
If not you, who else will free people from segregation!
Be the liberating nuke that demolishes all dogmatic shell.
If not you, who else will burn delivering the humanizing kernel!
― Abhijit Naskar, Mad About Humans: World Maker’s Almanac

Acceptance and Inclusion, that’s the only way forward

Beyond the two opposites of religious extremism and atheist extremism.

COVID-19 Statement

“Seek information on the COVID-19 situation only and only from the WHO and CDC websites, not from politicians, celebrities, news channels and religious fanatics. The Corona Virus is a previously unknown virus which can make people from all ages very, very sick and it is more deadly for older people with pre-existing medical conditions. However, contracting COVID19 is not a death sentence. So, maintain social distancing and wash your hands frequently with soap and water, until the WHO lifts the global emergency. And above all, do not share conspiracy theories about the Corona Virus outbreak on social media, because it makes it more difficult for frontline workers to contain the situation. Be responsible and stay safe.” – Abhijit Naskar
